Transit Planning

Transit planning requires more than just expertise in transit. Fehr & Peers’ expertise in all modes of transportation allows us to bring a unique perspective to transit projects. We understand that, in order for transit to be effective, it must be closely integrated with other critical elements including land use, the roadway system, and the adjacent network of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. This multimodal approach has been instrumental in our success in this practice.
